If the hay laden shape
of a farmer with arms
spread "eagle" sends shivers
through corn eating crows
and other grain epicureans,
then why is that crow
landing on the farmer hat
pecking out the straw face
and spreading guano lavishly

on the field guardian's bright

colored plaid shirt?

Because the crow feels that it's only warmth comes from the sun, and not within.

Or

the crow is blind and can not see the immediate danger, or the crow is fearless and knows more than the other birds, or . . . as you say, he is fueled by sunlight heartlessly :D
